Hi Carrie Margaret

Thanks for this question! 

Yes, menopause can change the color, texture and amount of hair women have. 

This is due to hormonal changes that take place during these years. Women's hair tends to get grayer, can become a little more coarse due to lack of moisture and can become thinner. 

This is considered a normal part of aging. 

You can read about menopausal hair changes here (as well as gains in hair where you don't want it!):


Let me know what you think!
